I wanted to do a ranking of my favorite Doctors, though.  I'm leaving out Colin, Sylvester, and Jodie, as I haven't seen enough from them to really give them a fair chance.

I'll omit William Hartnell and Patrick Troughton, because I haven't seen any of their stuff for years and I don't remember it very well.

EDITED to fix Troughton's name
Formatting is also all messed up but I don't know why. It looks fine in my preview.

Ah!  Yeah, I don't like the Doctor as a romance figure, which is something McGann and Tennant focus on.  I like how he was originally, an eccentric gentleman of science, with a touch of pathos.  That's something that's been lost in the new series for the most part.  Capaldi really was the closest we got.

I recently saw this, and feel it to be somewhat accurate:

The biggest plot hole was the plot Big Grin . Spoilers...


Omnipotent factory computer that controls everything and has an entire army of talking robots to carry out it's will and to speak for it, decides the easiest way to get help is to print the words "help me" on the back of a packing slip and send it to a random alien in a flying police box... instead of you know telling anybody who actually works at the factory, at any point it chooses.
It didn't just send it to a random alien, it sent it to the Doctor.

Personally, this was the best episode of the series.  Other than the arachnid episode I think this season has been fantastic, and much better than the convoluted mess that Moffat delivered for most of his run or the high camp of Davies era. 

Same more people don't seem to be enjoying this season.

I may have missed something, or I'm getting it wrong but I thought the computer was sending out the messages at random, or to everyone in the hope they would reach somebody that could help. It just so happened that the packing slip included with a Fez was ordered by The Doctor. It certainly didn't choose to contact the The Doctor, unless it could telepathically influence DW to get a sudden hankering for ordering a Fez. I suppose it could have scanned through it's list of orders and sent a message to the most likely person to help?
I've not been able to watch in several weeks, so I've been catching up (I'm still two episodes behind).  I love this so much.  Whittaker is great, her gang is great, I love them all.

Also, this is unrelated, but does anyone know if the Tennant seasons ever got Blu-Ray releases here in region 1?  I found the Eccleston season at a store for less than $15 which was a steal, so I was looking into the rest of the seasons and I can't find 2-4 anywhere.  Am I going to need to give up and get a region-free player (or "hack" my player into being region-free if that's possible)?
The Tennant seasons did get a Blu-ray release in the US.  Unfortunately, you'll be hard pressed to find them.

Luckily for us, they were released in the UK region-free, no hacking required.  Unluckily, they're extremely expensive these days.

All the modern DOCTORS just got a blu-ray re-release this past October with new packaging and slimmer cases.

Being Black Friday, if you hurry you can pick them up super cheap!!!
Where's the Blu-Ray?  That page seems to only list DVDs.
Those are DVDs.  There is no Blu-ray release to my knowledge, and those DVDs aren't just repackaging the old discs, they don't have any special features at all!

Is there any particular reason you want them on  Blu-ray?  The DVDs are cheaper, and none of his episodes were shot in HD, outside of his final three specials (which can be easily found for cheap in HD).
